12:13 pm
heavier amounts of rainfall and pockets of that into the oakland area right now along 80 and 580 so watch out in that direction. this is starting to slide south and east. outside right now a little water on the lens. we have some showers showing up over the bay as we speak. the temperatures as you moot expect staying very chilly only 45 degrees in concord right now. 45 in san jose. and 45 degrees in san francisco on the mountaintops. many of those temperatures in the low 30s. so we are working on a very chilly afternoon around the bay area. our mount vaca cam showing things settling down a little bit in the north bay still a chance of more scattered showers there but blustery into the afternoon. tonight likely to see some partial clearing and some cold temperatures and then an unsettled weather pattern after this. we have a couple of storms off the coastline maybe not as impressive as today but nonetheless approaching the bay area. here's this one though right now working its way down across our skies pushing that moisture through the bay area and that is bringing with it the rain and the snow. that snow down to about 2,000 feet. it's going to be wet and breezy all around the bay area this afternoon especially into the
12:14 pm
south bay. a winter weather advisory continuing across all the mountains locally above 2,000 feet. the snow at 5" in some of the highest amounts in some of the north bay. so computer models showing you as the system slides through it will bring with it more scattered showers on and off and then looks like overnight tonight things will begin to settle down outside but it's going to be a very cold night all around the bay area. some of those overnight lows getting very chilly in spots. highs today only in the 40s and also the 50s. nighttime well we are still looking at overnight lows down to the freezing mark in some spots. next couple of days we are going to see those temperatures warm up a little bit and we'll dry things out on wednesday, a slight chance of a few more showers on thursday and on saturday. but folks if you get a chance, look up to the mountains. i think the skies are going to clear out a bit. you will see that snow up there and this is more than a dusting. one to five inches. >> that's pretty good. thank you. roberta is out in the kpix 5 mobile weather lab up on mount hamilton where it's
12:15 pm
snowing. >> reporter: yes, i'm atop mount hamilton here at the observatory. it's really hard to believe that just 13 miles down below is san jose. how much snow is accumulating here? check this out. all right? this is at least two inches of so if that has fallen just since noon. since 12:00. it's a dry snow. it's not like really great snowball weather. it's very dry because this comes from a cold system, a cold front. currently it's 28 degrees here atop the mountain. the winds have been blowing easily up to 18 to 20 miles per hour. and look what i ran across. mike williams and also manny acosta. we saw them cycling up the 13 miles to 4200 feet in elevation. you guys are crazy. >> yeah. well, we just decided to go camping last night and we didn't know it was going to be this snowy. we were expecting to come across a little but it turn the into a little more than we were expecting. >> reporter: what's your plan? will you get off the mountain? >> we are planning to head to
